Description

This cucumber tomato avocado salad is a healthy side dish that takes no time to put together. It’s our go-to for parties because it fits nearly every diet!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium red onion
  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, multicolored if desired
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 medium cucumber (we like English cucumbers)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. Slice the onion into thin slivers and soak it in water while chopping the remaining ingredients (to reduce the strong flavor).
  2. Meanwhile, chop the cucumbers into bite-sized chunks. Chop the avocado. Cut the tomatoes into wedges, leaving the seeds intact. Finely chop the cilantro.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir gently to combine. Serve immediately with a slotted spoon (or allow to stand at room temperature until serving). There will be liquid in the bottom of the bowl, which is ok. Leftovers do not keep well, so eating the day of is recommended!
